Biography

Martin Weides is from Cologne in Germany, where he grew up and was educated as a physicist.  After postdoc positions at the Research Centre Juelich (Germany), University of Santa Barbara (California, US) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (Colorado, US), he came to a joint position at University of Mainz and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany before joining University of Glasgow in 2018. He is an expert in experimental solid state physics at the interface with material science and electrical engineering. His main research is on the topic of coherent nanoelectronics, with a focus on spintronics in the quantum regime, hybrid qubit systems and quantum simulation and sensing. He is an expert in superconducting quantum circuits, microwave measurements and hybrid systems, with a spectrum of published work ranging from quantum information processing, Josephson junctions dynamics, material science, to microwave resonators and qubits. Among others he obtained grants from the ERC and Alexander von Humboldt foundation.

Publications

Professor Weides has published 60 peer-reviewed papers in international Journals.  His work has attracted more than 3000 citations with an h-index of 24 (Web of Science Researcher ID C-1470-2009).

Research Group

Professor Weides leads the Quantum Technology group at the University of Glasgow.
